I am going to try and post every Sunday if I can - and hopefully anymore I can squeeze in.
Been doing a bit of this and that - lots of cross-stitch. I really want my Midnight Moggies picture done before I get fed up of it. I'm really enjoying it. Will show a progress picture soon.
I've been basting lots of part hexagons for my 3-colour quilt.
I plan to get most of these basted ready for some serious sewing action maybe during the summer when it's hot.
I have finished a top ready for quilting. Once this is done it will be a UFO off the list. It is here. Karol-Ann - you may recognise this border fabric ?
This picture is deceiving. Those blocks are just 2 inches. Yes - I've been using up my little scraps. These blocks originally were part of this
It is the country sampler BOM from Ellies Quilt place that I started last year. Got to June and stalled. I knew I would not ever get these done now so took out the little square in a square blocks and made some more to make this little mini-quilt. I like it and would love to do a proper full sized quilt in this design. Not 2 inch blocks though - think that would drive me mad - lol !
This looked like this yesterday
Different fabric for borders. Once done I decided against it and off they came. This photo shows borders in process of being mitred. I like borders 2 better.
I have a tin or box for everything. Bit of an obsession - lol !!
By the way if anyone wants those 5 stitchery blocks January to May please shout out - I will be delighted to part with them - I have enough quilty guilt about UFO's just now.
Jess is home - absolutely exhausted - physically and mentally. She has certainly had her eyes opened. She is still in the process of sorting out her many photos so once they're done I'll put a few on here. She had an amazing time and would love to go back. I can see her doing volunteer work in the future. We are relieved to have her back safe and sound. She is very emotional about all she's experienced and it is a bit of a culture shock coming back to her life I think. Here she is at the AIDS orphanage. She wanted to bring some of these children home she said.
Take care xxx
